Musings on Men’s Fashion – Review of Bowie Jeans by Kasil Workshop

Every so often, I am awarded the chance to review merchandise that leaves me awe-struck and wanting more. The Bowie jeans from the renowned denim brand Kasil Workshop are one such piece. Let me explain my enamor to you now so you can start saving up for a pair of your own, ’cause you need one.

First, although these jeans are pretty damn slim, they aren’t constrictive on the legs or the pelvis, which is my quintessential beef with skinny denim at large. Praise form-fitting! On top of that, the denim itself is super-soft and almost pliable, which not only helps them be more comfortable, but also makes the process of cuffing that much easier.

Secondly, despite being slim, Bowie’s pockets accommodate for all my carrying needs. The front pockets are deep, roomy, and sown with plum-colored cotton fabric – gotta say I love that last little detail. The right one also comes with a cute key pocket, perfect for storing a couple of quarters or a stick of gum. The back pockets are spacious too and come with a simple yet noticeable design, no studs or crazy patterns. Additionally, none of the pockets bulge when occupied, which I find a bit magical.

Thirdly, and this goes without saying, the stitching is top notch and the waist perfectly matches my waistline. Again, I’m head-over-heels in love with these jeans and I think you’d fall for them as well. Be sure to give their newest collection a gander at the Kasiljean Official Shop.

Did I mention that the interior of the cuffs match my Chucks?! SWOOOOoonnn….

Gents, remember to check out our contest for a $3,000 diamond cufflinks!!!

Lesson #84: Skinny jeans advisory

You probably shouldn’t be wearing skinny jeans given how some people ruined them for the rest of us. Still, something can be learned from talking about them.

INFEASIBLE: Unisex skinny jeans


Even if hipsters hadn’t stripped us of the privilege to wear skinny jeans, unisex skinny jeans like these from Kill City would still be a dreadful idea. For like the billionth time, women can wear men’s jeans but not vice-versa and no in-betweens period. That and these in particular look like someone spilled milk all over them.

Feasible: Selvage, somewhat stretchy skinny jeans
In the distant future, maybe in a post-scarcity society run by cute robots and androgynes, the remaining men will shamelessly wear Nudie’s like the one featured above. Don’t hold your breath though.
